your lipid profile is normal .No need to take medicene.Triglyceride is little high but is not of much concern.Triglyceride warrants treatment only if it crosses 250.Moreover rosvastatin is not a drug for lowering triglycerides .you can lower triglyceride by cutting oil in food and walking for half hour.

I am 48 years old having weight 83 kg and height 182 cms recently I got thyroid test done. The results are: t3:91
t4:...
Increased TSH indicates there is a tendency to go for Hypothyroidism as TSH means thyroid stimulating hormone which is activated when there is a more need for T3 and T4. You need to be treated definitely otherwise you may develop thryoid hormone deficiency symptoms like slowness, tiredness,dryness of skin etc. Endocrinology is the branch to consult. As per homoeopathy every disease from simple cold to virulent cancer is caused by altered immunity. Homoeopathic approach is to balance this altered immunity bringing back the immunomodulation achieved by studying the individuals genetic make up which is prone to cause every disease. So that this approach will bring a complete recovery of the complaint and life long medication otherwise can be avoided. If interested opt for a consultation.

It feels like you are having knee Osteoarthritis. Osteoarthritis can occur at any time of life but the incidence increases with age. It usually affects people over 40 years of age. There is no cure for osteoarthritis but the progression of the disease can be slowed and pain and disability reduced. Treatment options include: Healthy body weight: Maintaining a healthy body weight will reduce stress on the arthritic joints. Nutritional supplements Supplements such as glucosamine have been reported to relieve the pain of osteoarthritis and halt, or even reverse. So please try to take this supplement once a day. Exercise Exercise can assist with the maintenance of muscle strength and the mobility of arthritic joints. Activity at a level that does not cause pain is not thought to worsen osteoarthritis. Non weight-bearing exercises such as swimming or aqua jogging in a heated pool may be beneficial. Range-of-motion and stretching exercises will help maintain the maximum possible movement in the joint. Stretching will help maintain or restore flexibility to the joint’s muscles and tendons. Cycling is a good exercise. You can apply cold or heat several times a day to reduce your knee pain. Just remember to cover the cold pack with a towel and keep your heating pad at a low setting to avoid burning your skin. Whether you use heat or cold, remove it after 20 to 30 minutes. If the knee is swollen or sore, the following positions and activities you should avoid until knee pain and swelling resolve: Squatting Kneeling Twisting and pivoting. See a Physiotherapist for detail exercises programme and management. Best wishes.
